‘Israel Causing Headaches for US in ME’

A former US senator says Israel has become a liability for the United States in the Middle East as the world slams Tel Aviv’s continued settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In an interview with Press TV’s US Desk, Mike Gravel said the United States was the only country to support Tel Aviv, which was a great embarrassment to Washington, itself.

He further added that as Arab countries, like Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, and others reconstitute their governments, it would be interesting to see how Washington’s liability will play out.

The United States on February 18 vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution which condemned Israel’s settlement building in the occupied Palestinian land. The resolution was sponsored by 130 countries.

The veto is the first by the Obama administration amid popular protests against the United States’ allies in the Arab world.

Reports say Washington argues that a peace process — and not the United Nations — is the proper medium for what has been a major dispute between the Palestinians and Israel since 1967, when the settlements started.
